One of the perks here at OR is the variety of creative consulting work that we are privileged to provide to riders, trainers, brands, barns, and equestrian organizations looking to elevate an image, introduce a new concept, or carve out a distinct niche. Consistently, we are challenged with a common theme: to display a unique point of view through compelling words and pictures.
Several recent projects had us admiring the work of photographers who visually strike a narrative even when faced with the most impatient subjects. Equestrian photography is a huge business, and there is no denying the majestic beauty of a horse suspended in time, especially when it’s one’s own. However, exposing an individual trait or quirk of personality is often the ultimate goal in equine portraiture, and is what sets many talented photographers apart (we won’t get into some of the brilliant apps and props we’ve witnessed to incite a desired pose!).
Whether or not you are in the market for a lensman or woman, or in search of artistic inspiration, below we’ve identified a few of our favorite Instagram accounts featuring a range of pictorial styles worthy of a steady presence in your feed.
